House Financial Services Committee Markup of Bill to Exclude Lawyers Litigating Debt Collection Cases from FDCPA Deferred Until March

by Jeff Sovern

Sobol (Texas A&M) criticizing a debt collection bill pending in the House, HR 4550, which would exclude from the FDCPA's coverage attorneys to the extent they are engaging in litigation. Though the bill was originally scheduled for markup this week by the House Financial Services Committee, is reporting that the markup of that bill has been postponed until early March.
